Arcadia Alley

ARCADIA ALLEY, 8x10" oil on linen, plein air, ©Diane Mannion

A Good Day

Painted with the Punta Gorda VAC Plein Air Artists this morning.  Cool and breezy!  Great seeing so many practicing for the Arcadia Paintout.

Have always wanted to paint this charming antique shop window with the lacy curtains.  The red/orange bricks were a great contrast with the deep blue sky.  Happy with this one!
Sharon took this work in progress, location photo with my admirer, Mr Pumpkin-Head.

And in the afternoon... did a small watercolor while waiting for an appointment.  A good day, painting with oils and watercolor!  My car's a rolling studio, actually did the watercolor while sitting in the car.  Will post it tomorrow.

Thank you, Sharon. Drove by the spot where you painted. You're right, those buildings won't be standing much longer.
